Paul Walker's lost film was focused on poaching in Africa
In early drafts, Clynes' hero was a conservation biologist-turned-Washington bureaucrat who went to Africa to hunt antelope and rediscover his masculinity. To turn it into a Walker film, he was asked to make the protagonist an ex-soldier searching for his identity but not necessarily his virility. "In the original, he needed to get his balls back, but Paul is an actor who really needs to come into a movie with his balls intact," says Clynes, 53. "He wanted to be active from the beginning as a fighter, and it made sense. This guy, Paul, had fantastic ideas."
